Victory College

Independent School

Established in 1980, the College had humble beginnings as Gympie Christian Academy, with just 2 teachers, 2 teacher aides and 36 students. Work first began on the original 20 acre property, the old Gympie cattle yards. The first classroom actually doubled as the church for Christian Outreach Centre. The classroom was set up each Sunday evening and packed up each Friday afternoon. By 1982 due to the increasing demand for quality Christian education the College numbers had grown steadily and the College was able to employ an administrator and additional staff. Under new and exciting Pastoral leadership in 1995 the College changed their curriculum from ACE to the current Queensland State Education curriculum incorporating a Biblical world view. Victory College is a co-educational college from Kindergarten - Year 12. Implementation of the National Curriculum means we are leading the way in the Cooloola region in ensuring our students have access to not only the latest state-of-the-art facilities and educational resources but also the most up-to-date curriculum available.

West Moreton Anglican College

Independent School

West Moreton Anglican College is a young College - built on the foundations of a much older Anglican School which was located in Ipswich. St Paul's Day School was founded shortly after the establishment of St Paul's Church, Ipswich, in 1855. In the official history of the Church it's noted that St Paul's was the first brick building in Brisbane Street, Ipswich, and that the first appointed Master of St Paul's Day School was Mr Alfred Haxeldon. West Moreton Anglican College grew out of the vision of Reverend Canon Gavin Ott and the desire of the parishioners of St Paul's Church to offer the families of the region a co-educational facility. The new school was to provide a holistic and integrated philosophy of education based on a Christian way of life and in accordance with the principles and traditions of the Anglican Church of Australia. The aim of the College, recorded in the first prospectus, was to develop balanced, fully rounded and motivated individuals who can reach their maximum potential intellectually, socially, culturally, physically and emotionally. WestMAC remains true to this aim to the present day. In the very early planning stages, Father Ott asked Dr Hugh Bartholomeusz – a well-respected specialist in private practice in Ipswich – to become Chairman of the College's Steering Committee. Together, Dr Bartholomeusz and the Steering Committee manoeuvred the mountains of regulatory requirements to reach the position of appointing Mr Paul Claridge, formerly of Geelong Grammar School (Victoria), as the Foundation Principal in 1993.
